with a lot of romance and suspence, Barbara Freethy has pulled us into the lives of many of Angel s Bay s inhabitants, and even some outsiders.Summary Costume Designer Isabella Silveira has been fighting her instincts for two weeks, but she cant fight anyIzzy decides to visit her older brother Chief of Police Joe Silveira after he sends her an old necklace he found in the basement of the house he inherited Since putting the necklace on, Izzy hasnt been able to sleep a whole night through, at least not without dreaming Being the youngest of five children wasnt always easy, and Izzy grew up being told that her unique blue eye color and special knowledge of events that havent happened, was just a way to make her feel special over her other siblings Along with painful past memories and rejections, Izzy hides the side of herself that inherited the gift of insight Usually, she s able to push it aside, but she cant in this instance because the dreams she s having show someone in danger and it could be her brother Taking action and driving to the small town her brother called home was just supposed to be to ease her mind, maybe help to quit her dreaming, but instead it turns into a life endangering journey On the way into town, another car forces Izzy to break and swerve, but with wet pavement her car veers off the face of the cliff Luckily, a good samaritan sees her tail lights plunge over the side and is able to get to her while her car is resting against some very unstable rocks The man, Nick Hartley, is able to pull Izzy from the car just before it completes its fall into the cold, swirling ocean below Izzy is stunned to face the man she s been dreaming of for two weeks, but wvenstunned at the heat and connection she feels with him Nick grew up in Angel s Bay

cant help but be intrigued by this mysterious, sexy woman, but he doesn t take risks any and he needs to focus on winning his daughter back Just as Izzy gets settled into town, her brother, Joe is called to advise on the disappearance of a you g girl who just gave birth, Annie Joe knows that Annie has been under a lot of pressure and stress and is at first convinced she simply dropped it all and ran, leaving her baby behind with Charlotte Adams and her mother It is quickly determined that Annie was taken against her will and a search is planned Charlotte and Joe are still dancing around the tension and attraction between them, especially as Joe s divorce has yet to be finalized With Annie missing and Charlotte on full time baby duty, there really isnt much chance to talk, but a lot is hinted at Charlotte and Joe are also mired in the knowledge that the father of Annie s baby is one of five prospective adoptive parents This brings complications not only to the adoption, but also to Annie s disappearance and who might be responsible as well as several marriages coming under fire With all the chaos, Joe is working over time to bring the young mother home safe to her newborn son Izzy decides to keep herself busy working at the local theater, helping get ready for their winter production by helping with costumes It just so happens that Nick s family runs the old theater in Angel s Bay, a d their connection may come from a lotthan him rescuing her Nick was going to keep his distance from the beautiful, witchy woman who snagged his attention, but he had no chance with her running into him practically everywhere they go Fighting with a teenage girl all day takes a lot out of a person, and when him and Izzy always end up in close proximity, it becomes difficult to keep their hands to themselves Izzy knows she needs to be close to Nick for something, she doesnt know what it is and it turns out that a relative of hers was once involved with one of Nick s and that and the necklace is what helps to provide such a strong connection between them Both are struggling with showing their true selves and landing in the right place Nick cant be the wild, dangerous boy he was He s a father and his daughter needs him, but being the perfect rule following man doesn t seem quite right either Izzy needs to believe in herself so she can be the woman she should, that her ancestor s never had the chance to be Pulling away from each other becomesandimpossible, but when a heartbroken, emotionally vulnerable young girl catches her father with Izzy, will they have to stay apart for a bigger,important reason Danger is brewing for the residents of Angel s Bay Can Izzy help to resolve a small piece of it and help a father and daughter find each other again while learning about her tie to the original twenty four and being supportive for her brother I enjoyed book four very much Izzy was awesome I was awes by her ability and her warm hearted nature She also was straight forward and energetic It made me giddy just reading Lol Nick sounded like the perfect bad boy reformed He had that dark, guitar playing edge, but he was also successful and responsible At times I felt his daughter was a spoiled brat Granted, Nick was so concerned with her pushing him away that he wouldnt put his foot down As the parent, a good spanking can change a child s point of view very quickly i know it did for me growing up Lol We got a bitof Joe and Charlotte I adore them together, and really cant wait to find out the full story It has slowly been unraveling throughout the other books, but finally we will get all Joe and Charlotte all the time I m also relieved to have Annie s story pretty much settled I felt like it was starting to drag a bit Still, a fantastic story 3

    I was expecting this to be just another modern romance with the sulky teenager acting as the impediment to true love Instead, I found a surprisingly rich story with psychic visions, teen pregnancy, marriages struggling due to infertility and infidelity , finding room for childhood dreams within adult lives, regrets over lost love, old scandals, and a sweet love story Sometimes the dialog seemed a little forced, clinical as a therapist asking about probing questions instead of two people just I was expecting this to be just another modern romance with the sulky teenager acting as the impediment to true love Instead, I found a surprisingly rich story with psychic visions, teen pregnancy, marriages struggling due to infertility and infidelity , finding room for childhood dreams within adult lives, regrets over lost love, old scandals, and a sweet love story Sometimes the dialog seemed a little forced, clinical as a therapist asking about probing questions instead of two people just having a conversation, but it was a nice change of pace You get a real sense of Angel Falls as a real place with real people, people with hurts and dreams and loves

    Isabella Silveira has what some call sixth sense She has the ability to see visions, often a forewarning of things that might happen in the future, but sometimes its snippets from the past When her brother Nick sends her a necklace that he found in his uncle s house in Angel s Bay she starts having dreams of a shadowy figure,and it seems the person is in danger She thinks it might be her brother Joe she is seeing because he has recently divorced, and moved permanently to Angel Bay after he in Isabella Silveira has what some call sixth sense She has the ability to see visions, often a forewarning of things that might happen in the future, but sometimes its snippets from the past When her brother Nick sends her a necklace that he found in his uncle s house in Angel s Bay she starts having dreams of a shadowy figure,and it seems the person is in danger She thinks it might be her brother Joe she is seeing because he has recently divorced, and moved permanently to Angel Bay after he inherited their uncle s house, and took the job of chief of police in the tiny town The premonition has her so worried that she decides to visit him While on her way there she is run off the road, and is rescued by Nick Hartley As soon as she sees Nick she realizes he is the person she has been having visions of, not her brother Nick is struggling to find common ground with his 15 year old daughter Megan, who has come back into his life after her mother decides she wants to remarry and doesn t want Megan around The last thing he wants is a relationship with Isabella, but something about her draws him to her, but how will he feel when she tells him about her visions, and why would she sense that he is in danger I loved the small town feel of this story, a town where people go planning on staying a few weeks and wind up being permanent residents There were plenty of things happening to keep it interesting such as the mystery of what happened to Annie, and why she would abandon her baby, or did she The relationship between Charlotte and Joe is interesting, and I wonder how it will work out since Andrew seems intent on dating Charlotte The author does an amazing job of pulling you into the lives of the characters immediately, and while the main storyline is interesting the secondary stories are just as important I think one of my favorite characters was Megan, she was looking for a place to belong, and by the end of the story I got the feeling her relationship with her dad would work out While this book is a part of the Angel Bay series it can easily be read as a stand alone work I haven t read any of the other books but had no problem jumping right into this story The author whets our appetites by giving us a sneak peek at the next book in the series, which really starts off with a bang I would be remiss if I didn t mention the eye appealing cover on this book, it drew me right in, so sometimes you can judge a book by its cover If your a fan of contemporary romance, with a bit of mystery and drama, that will keep you turning the pages to see where the story is going then this book is definitely for you I for one can t wait to take my next visit to Angel s Bay rating 4 5
